 I did this trail from the bottom as a round trip. I seriously don't recommend doing it this way! Unless you are into the whole "pain for pleasure" thing, not that there is anything wrong that, it's just not my thing.
The trail is pretty steep and rocky, lots of loose rock, and ended up being over 3 miles and 1900 vertical feet, and I ended up pushing my bike the majority of the uphill.
The downhill wasn't awesome either on an XC bike, maybe if you have a big downhill bike then it would be better.

 I am pretty sure most people shuttle this. But good on you for earning your turns!

 Not the best I went about halfway up the trail and by then I quit because I walked my bike most of the way because it was just a lot of loose rock but probably a fun downhill trail.

 From the bottom, the first half is steep and a little rocky, but it's rideable. At the halfway point it gets really rocky and loose with larger rocks and some sections that are definitely hike-a-bike. After that, it gets really steep until the last 1/3 mile or so where it turns to dirt as you top out.

Riding down can be sketchy, but it's still pretty fun.
